“History Day has been one of the most rewarding learning experiences that she has ever been involved with. The love for history evolved from being involved in this program. She has gained so much confidence in public speaking, her research skills were challenged, and she learned so much about computers and visual media.”

Our Mission

The New Mexico Humanities Council strengthens our connections with one another and facilitates imaginative explorations of who we are, who we have been, and who we aspire to be.

About Us

The New Mexico Humanities Council (NMHC) encourages and supports the humanities by seeking out and funding quality humanities programs for presentation to and participation by diverse public audiences throughout New Mexico. Thought, learning, and experience must be shared. This is what it means to be human.
